Half the year gone and time for the sales again. We go to the Tattersalls July sale next week with 2 nice mares-Valen ,in foal to Garswood and Tohaveandtohold in foal to War Command.
While Valen was a two year old winner,neither gained the black type to qualify them to stay with us. They are both nice straightforward mares though and will be good buys for someone.
We also consign Style Award in foal to Coach House and with a lovely Captain Gerrard filly at foot. Style Award had a major update on Thursday when her second progeny- Kuramathi- won first time out at Tipperary.
Otherwise we are starting to think about how many of the 9 colts and 3 fillies will go to the sales as foals this year. We sold 5 as foals last year leaving 4 to sell as yearlings this year (and we will retain 1 to race).
On the track , we have had a quiet time. Glenalmond has been thinking too much about his racing and despite his ability he is sliding down the ratings. Rivellino has had some respectable runs and should win something nice in his turn. Ailsa on my Mind owned in partnership could be quite good and we look forward to seeing her when she gets over her current cough.
